Amazing, almost photographic style of George Kovach is impossible to oversee. Again, many of you might be familiar with his works from the post cards, calendars and puzzles. Enjoy!
George Kovach was born In Cleveland Ohio in 1942. It was during his childhood on an Ohio farm that art became the focus of George's life. After moving to Miami, Florida in his early teens, George's talent was further stimulated and refined by easier access to museums and art classes. His unique style was developed more fully when he received a scholarship to the Art Institute of Miami. After graduating, George worked as a commercial artist. He joined the Air force in 1961. After his discharge he devoted his full attention to art and has been a full time fine artist for over 30 years. Now George and his wife Kay live near Abilene, Texas.
George's landscapes reflect the sensitivity and the warmth which flows from the artist to the canvas. Each painting, eloquent and rich with the artist's unique lighting effect, has put his work in demand among noted collectors throughout the United States. Concise and quiet in manner, George is dedicated to the integrity of his profession and strives for authenticity and accuracy in every painting.
George has been commissioned to do paintings for numerous prestigious customers, both celebrities and corporate. A founding member of the Texas Cowboy Artist Association, George was awarded a gold medallion three consecutive years for "Best of Show". In his own words, "Painting is a way of communicating my thoughts and feelings and the joy that I receive from my art."
Since joining his publisher, Northwoods Craftsman, in 1992, George has become "One of America's Most Versatile Artists".
